The executive of Spain's autonomous region of the País Vasco has confirmed that in its, yet to be released, calendar of official regional public holidays (calendario laboral) for the upcoming calendar year 2014, there would be no change to the recently-added non-working public holiday of October 25, though changes to that public holiday are likely for 2015 and beyond.

Three years ago (2010-04-23), the parliament of Spain's Autonomous Region of País Vasco had approved the declaration of October 25 as the "Día del País Vasco" (Euskadiko Eguna) to commemorate the anniversary date of the Statute of Gernika in 1979, and to be observed as a regional non-working public holiday beginning in 2011.
